Tried to read this shit.
Focus on "tried".
It was boring as hell, and cliché as fuck. Can't believe I endured almost 7 volumes before giving up. Never again.

Owen Cruz

Cliche though it may be, it's not poorly done like this seasons Hundred (I only watch the first episode, sorry if it did a 540 to make a comeback).

Logan Gomez

Aw shit. Death March getting localized? Yen Press aside I'm gladd. Been reading this for a while.

Ayden Lee
Ayden Lee

Can't wait to read about the Loli Food God on his sight-seeing tour around a Magical World.

That said, feels weird that YP would pick this up.
Wait, is it getting an anime soon? Or do they actually think it'll do well in the west?

Parker Peterson
Parker Peterson

This. For me this was even worse than Re:Monster, because, differently from Re:M, I actually got expectations out of Death March.
And then, they were utterly trampled once I realized what kind of story Death March really was. "Story". Heh.

Zachary Wright
Zachary Wright

I dunno about this of all things getting an anime. It's too long, and I feel a anime would just butcher it to boost LN sales.

Joshua Taylor
Joshua Taylor

Their new partnership is probably responsible for that since it's highly popular in Japan.
Goblin Slayer - which is fairly new - was picked up as well, but I've no clue about its popularity.

Asher Gonzalez

I feel a anime would just butcher it to boost LN sales.

What are Light Novel Anime adaptations?

Yeah, I sort of forgot about that. Kadokawa will probably push out more series with less care about whether or not there's a big enough niche in the US. Actually, they might just be trying to see what works and what doesn't, while also building interest in Light Novels.

Jordan Cook
Jordan Cook

I'm happy and all about the license of this since I always wanted to read the LN version of it.
But, I think it's about time they stopped licensing these trapped/transported/reincarnated in a game/other world setting novels and focus on something else again.

Nathaniel Rogers
Nathaniel Rogers

But it sells. Haven't you learned from SAO?

Lincoln Cruz
Lincoln Cruz

Try reading the LN, now that it's getting translated. Just give it a try, usually the LNs are way better than their WN counterparts.

Aiden Hughes
Aiden Hughes

stopped licensing these trapped/transported/reincarnated in a game/other world setting novels
Eh, they haven't licensed THAT many compared to others, have they?

Their bigger names happen to be of that kind, but that really can't be helped. What's popular is popular, and what's popular is power fantasies.

Angel Evans

For those who want to see how the Light Novel is:
https://miaomix539.wordpress.com/2015/09/17/hello-world-and-death-march-1-prologue/
The first two volumes have already been translated.
(Note: Double translation from Japanese -> Chinese -> English)

Brayden Jones
Brayden Jones

The series is fine though.

Gavin Jackson
Gavin Jackson

In my opinion, I think the WN does it better (except for the dog-kin children party that was added to the LN, that was cute).

Also just use novel updates links

Aaron Bell
Aaron Bell

There are still a lot of them, though.
NGNL, SAO, Re:Zero, Overlord, KonoSuba, Log Horizon, Death March. No clue if I forgot some.
Nearly half of these were recent licenses.

I could mention DanMachi as well since it's extremely similar and the only difference is simply the absence from the reincarnation/transportation part. But I won't do so since it doesn't fit the criteria completely. Well, I did mention it in the end, though.

Matthew Russell

May as well include Accel World.

Daniel Gray

fucking transported/reincarnation fantasy shit.
Where's my mecha LNs?

Nathaniel Perez

Can that also follow game logic?

Blake Reed

You can have Knights and Magic.

Oliver Russell
Oliver Russell

Pretty much all of the 90s was mecha, not LNs, but it pretty much kill everything else mainstream in otaku culture.

They'll come back on a few years, but we're in the harem/fantasy transition stage.

Adrian Gutierrez
Adrian Gutierrez

I only hope that it doesn't kill the online translations like with Konosuba, importing this to Europe would be a bother and too costly for me.

Henry Rivera

No. Only angst and war drama

Leo Gomez

But that's boring

Camden Campbell

Agreed. She really has me sold on the whole desuwa thing. I wonder if he will marry her with the elf and nun.

Oh, and please don't spoil. Still reading.

Jaxson Rodriguez
Jaxson Rodriguez

It probably won't affect Sousetsuka's translation since he's doing the WN, but the LN translation is pretty much already dead anyway so...

Josiah Diaz
Josiah Diaz

But that's boring
implying fantasy shit is not

Charles Powell
Charles Powell

We have enough angst and war drama.

Luis Diaz
Luis Diaz

No it's not.
I'm not going as far as saying it's worse than Re:Monster, like that other user did, but for me it's way worse than the second half of Tate no Yuusha.
And I absolutely abhorred that second half, apart from a few good characters (like best girl Atlas, her brother, Kiel, the whale girl, the mole girl, the mad scientist, etc...)

Evan Ross
Evan Ross

It is amusing how the Nun is almost as thirsty as Arisa and Nana.

Austin Russell
Austin Russell

there are people who hate the story about a gourmet tour in a fantasy world
What the hell is wrong with you?

Adam Evans

you will never travel the world with an entourage of cute lolis.

Charles King

I like her ~desuwa thing and her annoying kohai (as satou put it) personality, but it just throws me off how her tits always look like they're repelling each other.

It takes them 1year to translate what a independent translator can do in a few months

gourmet tour

Recreating Moden Junkfood counts as gourmet?

Fucking hilarious.

The author is such a lazy ass that he can't be half assed to come up with fantasy food.

Everyone just dicksucks MC for recreating tempera instead.

Gavin Howard

Except MC is anti-lolicon.

Wait, YP picking up a series that hasn't been translated online yet? I might actually buy this one.

Nathan Williams

It's not exactly the first time, but what's most surprising is that Goblin Slayer only released in Japan this year. It's pretty much the most out-of-nowhere license they've had, I think.

Ethan Rodriguez

Aw yes. Liza is hot.

Aiden Bailey

I mean how most of the stories they've picked up in the past already had fan translations.

Unless you mean something else.

Joshua Russell

Have you not read the series? She's super fucking thirsty.

Daniel Reyes

Nana is only thirsty for young organisms, she hardly cared about Satou.

Jeremiah Campbell

I thought it was established that Satou is just horrible with names?

Kevin Taylor
Kevin Taylor

Satou intentionally has terrible naming sense. If I recall, Pochi and Tama are also common dog and cat names in Japan, I think.

Owen Collins
Owen Collins

I really don't understand this kind of people, it is quite obvious what kind of story this was going to be, the MC even tells you directly, I don't know what kind of expectations people had but once the MC leaves his first city you should understand what kind of story this is, if you expect something else you're an idiot.

Jonathan Johnson
Jonathan Johnson

It's definitely the most surprising one like some user already said.
And it's not only that it has no translation, it doesn't even have a manga (well, it's starting in a few days in Japan).

Wyatt Sanchez
Wyatt Sanchez

That guy looks like a Dark Souls character

Colton Barnes

satou rejects her and tell her he love the high elf
So fucking good, more MC should be like that

Jack Phillips

High elf a shit.

Landon Baker

She's cute. But it kind of surprised me that Satou just kind of says he wants to marry her all of a sudden.

Jordan Green

I wonder how much longer until the dragon god will finally appear in cute girl mode. The WN already has 450 chapter, we have to reach the endgame soon.

Nice aesthetics.

Elijah Torres

Everyone says it's fine.

Caleb Ward

What kills me is I'm about 100+ chapters in and nobody has noticed the dragons are gone or at least gone to check on them.

Jack Bailey
Jack Bailey

This shit gets an anime? Really?

Jesus christ it was so bad. Welp I am completely overpowered and have a harem let's not fuck them and also I am not greedy and am going to use my powers for good things because muh japanese norms.

Fuck.

Juan Hernandez
Juan Hernandez

As far as anyone is concerned the dragon god will revive and just create a bunch of new dragons.

Samuel Harris
Samuel Harris

Remember that dragon Vally has a barrier around it.

Jackson Barnes
Jackson Barnes

I think the important point is that there are massive craters all around the continent the dragons lived on and for some reason nobody is worried.

Asher Roberts
Asher Roberts

dragon valley that not even the best knights in the world can walk 30 minutes without being mangled
if you can make it near enough the dragon God may mistake you for a toothpick
I wonder why

Benjamin Morgan
Benjamin Morgan

Why be hype for anything in English?

It's either official releases that are late as fuck, or absolutely crappy machine translations from Chinese machine translations, that some schmuck edited a bit and acts like it's a gift to humanity.

Dylan Perez

Robert Hall

Sousetsuka's almost definitely going to get a take down notice. Yen Press doesn't care whether its the LN or WN version. Plus he has LN pictures up with the corresponding WN chapters.

Aiden Lewis
Aiden Lewis

He's a bro, I hope he doesn't bend over like sky did.
He's also just 60 or so chapters behind.

Adrian James

Sebastian Rivera

Well... yea... It's a good story though. And he lusts for her while she used him as a stud for a while. Then they're a happy couple.

I don't do VNs but I use and rss feed reader plugin to keep track of my LNs and WNs if that's what you meant.

Samuel Hernandez

Why, why did the 10 year NEET story have to add in a young cousin girl that has a crush on MC to get transported with him.

Jayden Ross
Jayden Ross

For the record I'm talking about

http://www.novelupdates.com/series/10-nen-goshi-no-hikiniito-o-yamete-gaishutsushitara-jitaku-goto-isekai-ni-tenishiteta/

That story. The LN decided to add in a Japanese high school cousin girl for MC to get transported to other world with. From the LN images she seems to have a crush on MC too. I guess the editors thought the story required a non dog or loli heroine.

Jack Miller
Jack Miller

You can't truly be a japanese winner unless you fuck your cousin.

Sebastian Jones
Sebastian Jones

But the point of the story is that the MC is as far from being a winner as could be. He's closer to being the side character in his own story with his dog being the main character.

Anthony Kelly
Anthony Kelly

A literal dog?

Evan Phillips
Evan Phillips

He's obviously a self insert beta MC. By the end he'll have a harem. Guaranteed

Wyatt Taylor
Wyatt Taylor

In the WN he doesn't. It's just him adopting a young girl he found in the forest as his little sister. Which is why I said apparently that's not good enough for a LN version.

Yes his female dog Koutarou is the courageous hero while the MC is a horrible coward. The dog was the one that killed the goblins that first showed up.

Josiah Thomas
Josiah Thomas

yeah, they ruined this one. I like when the MC always get sidelined

That's not really true. His menu and inventory and stuff is his alone true and how it lets him cheat instant cast magic and things but levels and skills and all that are part of the world.

Sure they're powered by the leylines but that doesn't change the fact that people are aware of the skills and stuff they have since appraisal from the yamato stones isn't exactly totally uncommon.
